From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. No sport can be learned just from reading a book, but this cogent, amply illustrated volume will certainly help novice golfers get started, and it provides a wealth of information for kids who have played a few rounds. The book begins with an overview: equipment, swing, full play, and short game. For those who are ready to go a little further, there is information on course management, and tournament play, and a short chapter on visualization. Since many seasoned players complain about a decline in golf civility, the chapter on golf etiquette is most welcome. The authors conclude their treatment with information on training devices and physical conditioning. Most of the color photographs illustrate technique, but there are some atmospheric shots, too, and the pictures feature a wide age range of players--from preteens to adults. Web sites and a bibliography are included, but new golfers will find plenty to digest right here. Ilene Cooper
